2022 IFTRIP?ReCODE Conference

On May 10, 2022, Ali Soufan, Founder of The Soufan Center, provided the keynote remarks at the 2022 IFTRIP ReCODE Conference. The International Forum of Terrorism Risk (Re)Insurance Pools (IFTRIP) represents the world’s largest gathering of international terrorism reinsurance pools, (re)insurers, public agencies, academics and risk and security professionals. Mr. Soufan’s address focused on the topic ‘The Terrorism Threat: A United States Perspective.’ In his remarks, he set out three key challenges for the terrorism insurance industry today: first, the endurance of Salafi-jihadist terrorism; second, the rise in far-right and violent white supremacy; and third, the Disinformation-Terrorism Nexus. He concluded: “The U.S. must be able to conduct counter-terrorism operations to address threats from non-state actors while competing with its nation-state adversaries, especially Russia and China.”
